Answers to Your Questions About Children’s SSI Claims
- Is your child eligible for SSI benefits? Without getting to complicated, if your child is blind or disabled, and you have limited income or resources with which to take care of their needs — your child may be eligible.
- Does it matter what the impairment is? No, not if it results in your child having “marked and severe functional limitations” for a period of at least 12 months. Yes, in the sense that there is a speedier process for certain types of serious conditions and impairments.
- What benefits are available? If your children’s SSI claim is approved, the primary benefits are a regular monthly payment and immediate health care coverage under the Medicaid program.
- Can a child work and still receive benefits? Yes, provided they are earning less than a certain amount each month (currently, $980).
